LAS VEGAS (KXNT) - The Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) will make the following southbound U.S. Highway 95 Durango Drive ramp closures in northwest Las Vegas:

May 9-10 (Thursday Night-Friday Morning)

• Southbound U.S. Highway 95 to Durango Drive offramp will be closed from 10 p.m., May 9, until 5 a.m., May 10, in northwest Las Vegas.

May 9-14 (Thursday Night-Tuesday Night)

• One outside westbound Durango Drive-thru lane will be closed periodically from 10 p.m., May 9, until 5 p.m., May 14, in northwest Las Vegas.

May 12-13 (Sunday Night-Monday Afternoon)

• Southbound U.S. Highway 95 offramp to Durango Drive will be closed from 11:59 p.m., May 12, until 3 p.m., May 13, in northwest Las Vegas.

May 13-14 (Monday Night-Tuesday Night)

• Westbound Durango Drive to the southbound U.S. Highway 95 circle onramp will be closed from 9 p.m., May 13, until 5 p.m., May 14, in northwest Las Vegas.

The temporary closures are needed for open grade paving work as part of a $78 million, six-mile-long widening and upgrade of U.S. Highway 95 between Ann and Kyle Canyon roads that broke ground in January 2018. The project calls for expanding the highway from four to six lanes from Durango Drive to Kyle Canyon Road, constructing Elkhorn Road carpool access ramps and building a diverging diamond interchange at Kyle Canyon Road. The project is scheduled to finish June 20.

Motorists should use caution while traveling through the work zone, heed construction signage, and take alternate detour routes, if possible. NDOT works with Waze to inform the public about planned highway restrictions, but unscheduled changes, closures, and restrictions are possible due to weather or other factors.
